None of the press releases on Masur's website mention other candidates, including the Sierra Club press release. Web Link

Masur had great endorsements when she ran for school board a few months ago, but she still came in third. Web Link

I was just reading a copy of the Sunday April 15, 2012 San Mateo County Times. It is alive and well. RIP should check his/her facts before making easily refutable statements.

The last paragraph of this story was some how lost in the editing process. It should say:

Least one think Ms. Keith an opportunist for not mentioning the endorsement was a dual one, Ms. Masur on her website Web Link also claims the Sierra Club endorsement, without mentioning Ms. Keith.

So sad the Almanac never ran their own story when the press releases were issued, but instead chose to portray this very prestegous duel endorsement as a cat fight.

Masur and Keith are the only two candidates publishing press releases on their websites. Don't expect to see any of these to contain the names of other candidates. No viable candidate would ever put the name of another challenger in their own release.

The last Sierra Club endorsement for Dave Pine proved to be a big mistake environmentally so one has to wonder about these endorsements

Thank you Sierra Club! I can now cross both of these candidates off my list and concentrate on the others in terms of deciding who gets my vote.
